View Full Version : barnyard rigs...

07 July 2008, 03:56 AM
Hi all,
I've went thru ( and searched ) all the posts as I can see it....but I'm still looking for animal rigs.
I need to rig and animate a couple of barnyard animals (cows, pigs, chickens...) and I could use help on the 4 legged creatures....I assume I could just use some bones setup for the two legged type (chickens, ducks).
I've used biped a lot and started doing the rig tutorial on the max disk but (unless I havent reached it yet) I'm really looking for an animal rig I can use.
Anyways, if anyone knows where I could buy a tutorial DVD on animal rigs or has one or ....etc...etc...
let me know.

Also....if I finish the rigging / boning tut's on max's cd, should that be enough to have me rig / bone an animal and be sufficient. The animals don't have any crazy animation like talking or dancing...just basic animal movement and even minimal walking.

For me rigging is rigging.
Once you understand the basics. It doesn't matter what it is you want to rig. The same rules apply.

But this is a very handy Plug-in that can help speed up the process a lot:
